An UBER driver recommended this place and I'm so glad she did. Skip the crab (it comes in frozen) and order the mussels, Manila clams and shrimp. It's all served in a bag with the seasonings of your choice. I chose Cajun for my shrimp and mussels and garlic butter for my clams. Don't wear your Sunday church clothes -... More

And the way I like it they don't skimp you on spices or ingredients that's why they have good business we ordered Dungeness crab, shrimp, clam, crawfish, oysters, and Cajun fries.

The concept here is pretty awesome! Wax paper on the table. Pick your choice of seasonings, and your items and they come in a bag tat you can sprawl out on the table and get messy. You have to get the whole shebang and it's awesome on Shrimp and corn. Market price for seafood, but it's very reasonable. This was... More

Had a lunch here with some family. My nephews were over the moon about eating their food with their hands and no plates or silverware. We had crawfishes, shrimps, snow crab legs, oysters, and Cajun fries. Everything was excellent but he oysters. These didn't taste fresh at all. I had all kinds of oysters and these were just slimy and... More

I was a little hesitant since there was about a 30 min wait.....but oh was it worth it! The staff was very pleasant and accommodating. We ordered shrimp, oysters, sausage, and Corn on the cob. I had my hand in a cast and the waitress brought me a plastic bag to put over it! We ended up only ordering 6... More

Long, LONG wait but it's worth it. I've been here a few times and love the shrimp and King Crab legs! Always fresh and I always get the whole shabang. It can get a little messy because you peel and eat as you go but they have napkins and bibs for you. I've also tried their oysters, crawfish, and clams... More

The Boiling Crab is my first experience eating cajun seafood in a bag. Its messy and its delicious, and unfortuantely 100's of people agree, because getting a table at ANY of their locations can be hard to to. The average wait is 45 minutes, and i've heard some are as long as 2 hours. Is it worth it? Some say... More
